Jarrheadd0 on The Animar I Have Become

This looks really solid overall, but I do have a few suggestions.

First, it looks like you have a lot of creatures, which is great, but you could use a few more creatures in the 1- and 2-cost slots. You have to cast creature spells to get the +1/+1 counters on Animar, Soul of Elements, and low cost creatures can help you pump him up to get your fatties out faster. This is important because you have a ton of fatties. I would cut some of your 3-drop creatures (since there are many) and a couple of your fatties for some mana dorks. It's also worth remembering that Animar costs 5 if he's removed just once, and that can actually be hard to get to without enough mana dorks.

Secondly, there are a few cards I might consider changing out. Fervor could be exchanged for Anger, simply for the fact that it's a creature. It does have to be in the graveyard, so it's not strictly better here. Tezzeret's Gambit seems like it may not be worth potentially interrupting a Primal Surge. While it may synergize with Animar, I don't know how often you'll be wanting to spend the mana for it at sorcery speed in this deck. I would also suggest replacing Fuel for the Cause with Mystic Snake. Again, the proliferation isn't as much value as it seems, and it seems better to have a counter on a stick that can easily cost 3 in this deck.

Lastly, I would find room for Contagion Engine and possibly Contagion Clasp. Proliferation is much better on a permanent.

I really like the inclusion of Defense of the Heart and Equilibrium. I think they could both be pretty good in this deck, and I hadn't really been exposed to either. Nice work, my dude.

You could add a Contagion Clasp because +1/+1 counters.

Falkenbach1 on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH | *PRIMER*

Thats the hardest part ;) perhaps something that just puts a single -1 counter on a creature:

Fume Spitter or Splendid Agony or Contagion Clasp ?

I only played my own Hapatra deck 2 times. Both times it worked out well. Even found some great synergy with:

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Ivy Lane Denizen + Ammit Eternal every spell they cast is a snake for me :) and it lasted 2 rounds!

One last question: How has the rather low 32 lands worked out for you? I very rarely play less than 36 lands.

TrolledToDeath on Black is Best

I'd say try out a -1/-1 counter build then. You want to make sure your CMC isnt too high and with Lili being at 7 already you should get some creatures with lower cmc.

Fume Spitter, Necropede, Banewhip Punisher, Grim Affliction, Contagion Clasp, Nest of Scarabs are all super budget cards within theme but most aren't standard legal.

Oh almost forgot Tragic Slip what a hilarious card.

Thanks for the comments.

I had Brainstorm and Treasure Cruise in originally but I took them out as I never felt I was lacking draw and quite a few of our walkers draw already. Haven't put Venser, the Sojourner in as I don't own one. He would certainly go in if I had one.

I had Gideon Jura in also but he didn't really do a lot when he hit the board so I took him out. I could playtest him again instead of Ajani Goldmane. Contagion Clasp is a really good idea, I'll put one of those in for sure along with Impulse and Urza's Ruinous Blast!

Deploy the Gatewatch isn't the greatest but it's a really fun card but absolutely removable from the deck. One game I hit 4 walkers with Will Kenrith emblem out, others I've bricked.

Very nice deck, but I would suggest removing some of the low impact Planeswalker like Ajani Goldmane for more ramp or counterspells. Or even more impacting Pw like Gideon Jura. You can even play Contagion Clasp as a proliferate on the table that midly sinergies with Teferi, Timebender.

I would suggest playing the legendary sorceries on collor, people never removes Niambi from the table, so she also enables its activations.

How Deploy the Gatewatch fare? Does it miss a lot?

As a final tip, I would change Board the Weatherlight for Impulse.

I thinkvthe main deck looks good, as far as the sideboard I'm not sure what to really cut but, maybe over sanctuary you could try Wild Defiance I would also maybe look into Contagion Clasp for reach but that is just one that I have enjoyed in the past :p I think your deck is looking great imo
